DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Five Rivers MetroParks has begun taking volunteers to assist in clean-up efforts during the 23 annual Adopt-A-Park on Saturday, April 21.
Adopt-A-Park is a regional clean-up that brings together volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to make the parks and river corridors healthier and friendlier places to visit. There are about 30 areas for those individuals and groups already registered. The dedicated volunteers who participate each year in Adopt-A-Park provide vital help in making the Miami Valley a happier and healthier place to live.
Opportunities include litter removal, tree planting, honeysuckle removal and gardening activities. Volunteers will be provided with a free T-shirt and will receive a complimentary lunch at RiverScape MetroPark as well as project supplies. Those who register after April 11 cannot be guaranteed an available T-shirt in their size.
Individuals or groups interested in participating in Adopt-A-Park should call (937) 275-PARK (7275) or register online at metroparks.org/adopt.
